from The Daily Bell:
Russia’s Putin: why did Britain call Brexit referendum … Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday questioned why British Prime Minister David Cameron had called a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union. “If it’s such a problem, why did he initiate this, if he is against it himself?” Putin said of Cameron at a meeting on the sidelines of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum. -Reuters
This was a good question that Putin asked, though it is not clear if this was the language he used.
The Economic Times has a long quote from Putin, as follows:
Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested British Prime Minister David Cameron had called the referendum to “blackmail” and “scare” Europe. “Why has he set up this referendum? To blackmail Europe? Or to scare it? What is the purpose if he himself is against”
The Economic Times states that Putin made this comment “Friday during a meeting with representatives of news agencies, including AFP.”
Reuters, as you can see in our initial excerpt, has much the same quote and identifies it as something Putin said “on the sidelines” on Friday.
If Reuters intentionally didn’t report Putin’s statement about “blackmail,” perhaps it was because it suggests a more Machiavellian – and even malicious – strategy.
Reuters purports to be an impartial news service but anyone who closely follows its reporting can find evidence that the news service is supportive of globalism.
Putin’s statement about “blackmail” raises questions that would be awkward for the British “Remain” faction to address or rebut.
